I think there is a general interest from qpr fans as he is a former manager.

You talk about these dinosaurs that used to play for us before Christ & don't hesitate to put it on the qpr discussion forum so I don't see why a former manager should be any different.

We should try our hardest to get this former player back. It would give us all the creativity we need. Looks like the talent hasn't gone away. :D

A country mile better than anything we have going forward at the club, Freeman and Taarabt would be some creativity in that final third.

But hey let's not poke a stick at the neanderthals on here and upset the wasps nest.

I was saying just a few days ago to a QPR buddy that I disliked 'Arry even more than I disliked Hughes. If he keeps them up it'll give our games against Brum next season added spice.

Hughes the number one villain for me, wasted all of Uncle Tony's millions. We still feel the effects of his tenure today and will for years to come.

Did you see Luongo in the second half on Monday ? He was wriggling his way out of two/three men challenges in addition to winning tackles and everything in the air. Luongo and Freeman is perfectly good enough. Its just the tactics that we need to change in the first twenty minutes. That is all.
Come on you Sooopa ........

Last minute I couldn't attend, Luongo has played deep holding midfield when I've seen him, was yesterday the same?

Deluded Birmingham fans on SSN:

"Best signing ever"
"He'll keep us up this year and next year will take us into the Premiership" - I'm still laughing at that one.
"All his experience"
"Wise old head"

The stuff keeps coming. Do you remember when it was us saying those things.

I just hope Villa don't do their neighbours a favour.

He was the deeper of the two but was getting forward well to instigate chances (not that we created too many clear cut ones). He was excellent. I hope there weren't too many scouts watching. He'd be an asset to a team like Brighton.

I like Luongo a lot and Freeman is looking good, but i'd swap them in a heartbeat for the Taarabt of our promotion season. They aren't going to change games single-handedly week in week out. It's not fair on Holloway to suggest those two are only a change in tactics away from dominating this division.

If we're going to play a midfield 3, then splitting the advanced roles between Luongo, Freeman, Manning and Cousins seems like a pretty decent group for this level. I'm hoping Borysiuk might yet have a role to play (but not holding my breath) as i was impressed with him and think him, hopefully with competition from Goss as the holding player at the base of a midfield would really allow the other pair to assert themselves on the game more. One issue though is all are fairly short.

I think Luongo is class although lacks a bit of pace, my point is we are so short of quality in CM that Luongo will never get picked further up the pitch he is stuck in a CM / Holding
Role.

Which eludes to my point that we have nothing creative further up the pitch other than Freeman, Taarabt would be a welcome addition in my opinion.

Your right though if Luongo got snapped up I would be gutted, we would seriously struggle without him.
